WADA to help with probe into German doping scandal

Germany's national anti-doping agency and WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency, will work together to investigate a doping scandal at a training center run by the German Olympic Sports Confederation.

In a joint statement, they say they have "agreed on a coordinated approach to cases relating to the Erfurt Olympic training center and the issue of UV blood treatment."

Members of both agencies met to discuss the ongoing case against Dr. Andreas Franke, suspected of treating athletes' blood with ultraviolet light before re-injecting it back into the athlete, a procedure banned by WADA.

WADA director general David Howman says, "The important thing for now is that the doctor that carried out these procedures is no longer working at the center."
